Ana Lewis, CEO, founded Co-Op Web, Inc. in 1998, but began her career in the internet in 1994. Her background includes over twenty-five years of design experience, currently on the web and previously in the clothing industry. Ana is a certified Master Project Manager (MPM) and Project Manager for E-Business (PME).

Ana has been the Project Manager for more than 500 online business projects, including such services as: social media marketing, online community building, web presences, e-commerce and email marketing.
Currently, Ana is most enjoying the evolution of social media marketing on the internet. “I really love how social media has provided us with an additional way to connect to each other. So many people I have met via Twitter have become true friends and business relationships,” says Ana. “I am also grateful for the way that Facebook allows old friends and family to be united on a daily basis. It’s a fun way to keep in touch. “
In 2009, Ana founded WomenontheVerge.net, a free community for women throughout the world to let their voices be heard. It is a fast-growing group of passionate, savvy, sassy, opinionated and very real women. These women are united by the WOTV community, but come from every continent in the world as a supportive force of one. We are strengthened by our numbers, our voices and our unity. WOTV is currently supported via Twitter and Facebook.
Co-Op Web tries to exercise this philosophy in the work, in the building of communities via social media, in believing there is room for all of us, by being inclusive and by walking our talk.

My daily life: consists of yoga, meditation, social media marketing and gratitude for those who put up with me. My most popular post to date: A Day in the Life of a WAHM
Things I love (in addition to my family and friends): Learning, my tech toys and tools, and sleeping in my own bed at night.
In the closet: I always have projects going of things I am “into” at the moment. You can walk around my office and home and see my phases of origami, zentangle, photography, ball creations and the list goes on and on. Today? I am into book folding. Search the term and see if you don’t get roped into the zen-ness of it.

CERTIFIED SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING MANAGER
I am a special events, marketing and public relations consultant with more than 15 years of experience in the hospitality and retail industries. My most recent role included integrated marketing, community relations, and special events for an upscale department store. I love to uncover opportunities for companies to support the community, build buzz, create exclusive experiences, develop loyalty, and increase traffic.
When I am not working you can find me at my favorite spin class, listening to music, obsessing over a Netflix series or cooking in my tiny kitchen!
DIGITAL DESIGNER & ILLUSTRATION
My digital design and illustration career began at Hearst Interactive in the 90s. I’ve survived several iterations of the web and all its evolving metric demands, UX standards, and programming requirements at companies including the SciFi Channel, AKC, and Harry and David.
I received my BFA from UIUC in Fine Art, Painting, and still make art as often as I can.
EDITOR & WRITER
My current career in technology blends well with my ongoing work in graphic design, writing, and editing. My long-time experience in behavioral health focusing on outreach and community alternative treatment also contributes to my current work. Even though I have an allergy to labels, it’s safe to say I’m a multipotentialite. I’ve never done just one thing at a time, because variety, for me, is the antidote to a stagnant imagination. Also, it keeps me out of trouble.
